Aster novi-belgii 'Island® 'Tonga'
Common Name: Hardy Aster, Fall Aster, New York Aster
The Island® series is a relatively new compact form of fall-blooming asters. The dark mauve, semi-double blooms of 'Island® Tonga' have yellow centers. Asters are native to North America and are generally very easy to grow. A magnet for pollinators late in the season.
Due to their naturally compact habit, they are terrific in containers or near the front to middle of the border. They do not require any human intervention to maintain their neat habit and they have a long shelf life.
Asters are excellent cut flowers and attract butterflies. They make a terrific accent to fall blooming grasses and the changing colors of the trees. They are native to North America and are generally very easy to grow.
